I am very picky about the fruits and vegetables I buy.  I touch every red bell pepper, green, yellow or orange one to make sure they are ok.  Do the same with cucumbers and other fruits and vegetables.  They probably don't like me in the prouduce dept.  Also has to be Clausen pickles.  Must also buy Brown Gold coffee.  Peanut butter must be Skippy!  These are some of the musts in our house.

Hmmm well I do check my veggies, no brown spots no soft spots and smell my cantaloupe. I like Folgers or Maxwell House coffee but do like my coffee from Panama and Tully coffee. Used to love Cremora but hard to fi nd anymore and now I am back to drinking my coffee black. Also love Clausen pickles especially the ones with garlic and hard to find that anymore too.

I like coffee and have an unusual way of making it.  I use International Coffee Cafe Francais and mix with instant coffee and creamer.  My husband likes instant coffee plain.  Also I only drink one cup in the morning and that is it for the day.

I'm an ingredient reader. I avoid buying products with sodium nitrates and sodium benzoate in them.

I love brown Gold coffee but we can't get it here haven't had it in years I only buy my frozen veg's that are not in those steamed bags the steamed bag vegs are tough and I would like to do my vegs on the stove.It is getting harder to find them as the stores are carrying more of the steamed ones and fewer of the others.

Coffee is one of the ingredients that I am picky about. I like it dark and freshly ground. I grind the beans every morning and enjoy that delicious fresh and nutty taste.

I'm picky about a lot of things.  If I don't like the produce product I need, I find the produce manager and ask- with a big smile, very, very politely and nicely - if there is anything else.  Almost all of the time that manager will go into the back of his area and return with a big box of new things and I get my choice from that.  This is my local WalMart!

I'm picky about most brands but I'm trying to overcome that.  $$$  I've  actually bought some things in the WalMart brand .... one can of the "nice" brand and one can of the WalMart brand .... I mix 'em. 

What I find most silly about myself is that I just buy C&H sugar because it's made from cane sugar .... the cheaper brands are made from sugar beets.  Now THAT'S silly to think about.

Sugar and saturated fat.  Too much of either and I refuse to buy.
